The Career Readiness TPM Academy of North Carolina

The Career Readiness TPM Academy® is a training developed by the U.S. Chamber Foundation that seeks to enhance partnerships between community colleges and sub-baccalaureate programs and employers to improve completion, credential attainment and employment and career advancement, particularly for people of color.

The Career Readiness TPM Academy of North Carolina is a partnership with the North Carolina Chamber Foundation and North Carolina Community Colleges. Individuals from colleges, employers, workplace professionals and chambers of commerce, should apply if their organization is looking to use talent pipeline development strategies in meaningful ways during and after the TPM Academy program.  We recognize that attending the Academy alone will not result in change for your community—it will require your commitment to identifying, developing, and integrating tactics throughout your approach.

All participants in the TPM Academy are required to commit to attend the online training sessions, as well as two in-person workshops, between August and November. There will be a self-paced learning component as well as a weekly virtual training session which will include exercises and group discussion to ensure the learning is valuable and applicable to the participants.

Upon graduating the TPM Academy you will become part of the National Learning Network, a collaborative group that will support your efforts beyond your TPM Academy experience.  You also have the opportunity to take the TPM summative assessment and receive your Talent Supply Chain Manager digital badge.
